It's a relative good value for Florence, but food was ok, not great by any means. The tuna carpaccio appetizer was pretty good, as was my wife's steak, our daughter's spaghetti pomodoro, and the house wine. But the bread was hard and my pork chop was not a very good cut, too full of fat. They did bring us 3 brochettas we didn't order and the waiter said he had ordered them for us, which we thought was very nice and they were actually pretty good, but they showed up in the bill at €2.00 each. I didn't ask that they take them off the bill, but didn't leave an extra trip as I generally do if service has been good, even though service is supposed to be included in the price of food here in Italy.

We were going to another restaurant but it was closed, so this restaurant was a find. We sat in a little courtyard at the back. There were vines growing overhead. We ordered two menu touristicos for three people, my two children and me. Luckiliy we were hungry. It was most generous. The first course was a large plate of prosciutto, walnuts and salad with balsamic vinegar sprinkes, artistically presented. It was excellent. Then there was pasta and shrimp. Then a large pork chop grilled. With water the total was 30 Euros. This was excellent value and a great meal.

This restaurant is a find: nice people, very good food, and a charmingly eccentric decor. The seafood salad was absolutely amazing: huge, with each type of seafood perfectly cooked, and a lovely dressing. Skip the beans and the Florentine steak, but the pasta is lovely and the wine is delicious. The waitstaff speak excellent English and are very friendly.
